Christy - I have forunately not gotten the severe rash that some folks have. I did get a slight rash on my lower leg but the use of 1% hydrocortisone has done the trick for me. I also get small quarter sized red splotches at my interferon injection site each week. The 1% hydrocortisone lotion helps with that as well, although I also use lubiderm for sensitve skin lotion.
Oh by the way my leg rash did not show up until the end of week 6 I am now in week 9 and the rash is not an issue which I believe is due to the 1% hydrocortisone lotion.

Greyhound, thank you or the water calculation. I have been told water, water and even more water... but now I know to drink 100oz per day. I begin my triple therapy Tuesday am at 8:00am... yikes!

I recommend checking with a pharmacist. They can tell you what is helpful, what is harmful, and also inform you as to whether or not that is a reaction to the medicine (or combo of meds) your dad is on.

My husband tried every cream and lotion, some helped for a day some for a week, but none took it away. What worked the best was calamine, and hydrocortisone cream. Good luck
